Please welcome Luciano and Radice Pipes from Milan, Italy to the PM fold.
What is so awesome about Luciano Pipes is that they devised a way to provide a very high quality Italian pipe at a kind-of "artificially" low price. They are "Hand-Finished" Italian pipes. This means that part of the process is machine-assisted, but the most important parts, like drilling the holes, are done by hand.
This allows for some economies allowing the pipes to be high quality, but sell for much less than others of the same quality. Actually, several of the Luciano samples I saw were better quality than a 100% hand-made Italian pipe that I have, which shall remain nameless.
Here's Luca Di Piazza of Luciano Pipes and I at the St. Louis Pipe show last February.

Man, these pipes look gorgeous, and they are cheap enough that even a working schmuck like me could get one. They will definitely get some of my business after my Christmas shopping is done.

Cyndi, it's a piece of briar.
I've spoken to Luca several times at pipe shows and he's one of the most cordial and pleasant guys you'll ever meet.
My collection of Italian pipes is pretty meager, but I may have to expand it a bit.

This is my one and only Luciano:

It is a fine smoker. I have yet to buy a Radice, but they are high on my wish list.

RADICE PIPES, FANTASTIC. Sorry for screaming but they are great pipes. And yes, Luca is a super guy. We drove to dinner in Richmond and his GPS spoke in Italian!!!! It was blast listening to directions even though I could only understand very little.

We had problems finding the restaurant with an Italian GPS... just imagine an English one!!!
Let's start the first pipe of the day.
